Thank you for this information.
Yes I have tried to find them on 1940 census at ancestry but didn't find them. I may have missed them I'll have another look.
I did find them listed in a few Rochester Directories as early as 1937- he seems to move around the city often and have different jobs so that makes it difficult to tell if its always the same William Arthur Turney until after he marries Irene as she is recorded with him. - Mary
